As Cyndi Lauper used to sing, "Money Changes Everything".

When government is put in control of containing health care costs, strange and ugly things can happen.  Look at what's happening to our friends in Great Britain.

The Telegraph reported in 2009 that bureaucrats' eagerness to cut costs means that some Brits -- whose only underlying ailment is old age" -- are being hustled onto the "Pathway," a plan under which all care is withdrawn and patients are simply "made comfortable" (read: left to die).

Now, courtesy of the UK Daily Mail, we learn that sick babies are also being ushered onto the "Pathway".  How's this for a gut-churner?
